The nüvi 1200 has a slim design that easily fits in a pocket. It announces streets by name, offers pedestrian navigation options and calculates a more fuel-efficient route.
nüvi 1200 has an intuitive interface that greets you with 2 simple questions: “Where To?” and “View Map.” Touch the color screen to easily look up addresses and services and get voice-prompted, turn-by-turn directions that speak street names to your destination. It comes preloaded with City Navigator® NT street maps for the continental U.S., Hawaii, and Puerto Rico (or 1 European region or country); millions of points of interest (POIs); and 2-D or 3-D maps. And with HotFix® satellite prediction, nüvi calculates your position faster to get you there quicker.
